As 5 January 2021
St Margaret's Church is still open for services as follows:
Thursdays 10.00 am to 11.00 am
Sundays 11.00 am to 12.00 noon.
With the increases in infection, if you wish to attend one of our services, please click here for information on what happens at our services - thank you. If you prefer to worship at home, then please look at our "Situation during Covid" page to find postings from the Vicarage.
If you wish to attend the church for private prayer at another time, then please contact the Parish Office on email or leave a voicemail on 0121 357 1390 to arrange so that somebody can let you in.
As from 17 May 2021, Government restrictions have changed and attendance at Funerals will no longer be limited to
30 people, but will now be determined by how many people the COVID-secure venue can
safely accommodate with social distancing which
for St Margaret’s is 50 people.
Limits at Weddings, Baptisms and Interment of
Ashes will be increased to 30 people
(excluding church personnel).
For Weddings, the Vicar, Bride & Groom
do not need to wear face coverings although others do. For Baptisms,
please speak to the Parish Office.
Church worshippers are
reminded that they are required by law
to wear face coverings for services in places of worship (unless they have
a valid exemption), remember to sanitise
their hands and people are also reminded of the importance of continuing to self-distance (2m / 6ft 6in).
